Diversity Project London CIV are members of the Diversity Project, whose purpose is to accelerate progress towards an inclusive culture in the investment and savings profession. An inclusive culture across all levels supports more effective teamwork, gives wider perspectives, better investment decisions, better results for our clients and ultimately more sustainable businesses. The Project spans the whole range of the profession: asset owners, fund managers, fund selectors, pension consultants, actuaries, trustees, wealth managers and the professional standards and trade bodies. We believe that recognisable and measurable progress can be achieved over the Project’s five year timeframe.

UK Stewardship Code The UK Stewardship Code 2020 sets high stewardship standards for those investing money on behalf of UK savers and pensioners, and those that support them. Stewardship is the responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

The Code applies to:

Asset owners such as pension schemes, insurers, foundations, endowments, local government pension pools and sovereign wealth funds.

Asset managers who manage assets on behalf of UK clients or invest in UK assets.

Service providers such as investment consultants, proxy advisors, data and research providers that support asset owners and asset managers to exercise their stewardship responsibilities.
